SOAR SPECIAL NEEDS

Develop and create crafts for SOAR Special Needs Summer Camp. Our summer camp will be the week of July 19 - 23, 2021. SOAR camp serves over 100 individuals with special needs. Choose crafts based on the theme/lesson of the day. Write a description and step-by-step instructions for each craft. Level each craft to accommodate different ability levels of our campers (i.e. easy, medium, hard). Create list of needed supplies and have SOAR staff purchase the supplies ahead of time. Prep all craft materials needed for summer camp. Prep samples of each craft. Reset craft rooms at the end of each camp day for the next day's craft. Train craft volunteers regarding how to do each craft and expectations for clean up at the end of the day. Supervise our two crafts rooms the week of camp (there will be additional volunteers in each room). Assign volunteers to distribute crafts to teams as needed at the end of the day.

Mission Statement

Assist and empower families with special needs to SOAR in their local and faith communities with key resources, impactful activities, and thriving environments so that they can live beautiful lives.

Description

SOAR's core values come down to the three main questions every family with special needs asks: Will my children ever be able to provide for themself? Who will take care of my child after I'm gone? Who will take care of me?
These are important questions which deserve a committed organization for solving them. This is why SOAR exists - to provide a powerful destiny for individuals and families with special needs.

We offer FREE SOARly Needed R&R (Respite) nights, both in-person and virtual, for our families with individuals with special needs. During our in person R&R nights, we also have a simultaneous sibling program for siblings from birth to 13-year-old. Each evening has a special theme. These respite nights require volunteers on a regular basis in order to be successful.

We also offer a week long summer day camp for over 100 individuals with special needs. SOAR Camp is not possible without the help of many volunteers throughout the week.
